HISTORICAL SKETCH
The creation of a University in British Columbia was first
advocated by Superintendent Jessop in 1877, but it was not until
1890 that the Provincial Legislature passed an Act establishing
a body politic and corporate named "The University of British
Columbia.'' In 1891 this Act was amended to require that a meeting of the Senate be held within one month after the election of
the Senators by Convocation. The Senators were elected, but a
quorum did not assemble on the date fixed by the Chancellor, Dr.
I. W. Powell, of Victoria. Thus the first attempt to establish a
University in British Columbia failed.
However, some of the work normally done in a University was
begun in 1894, when an Act was passed which permitted the
affiliation of high schools in the Province with recognized Canadian
Universities. In 1899 Vancouver High School was affiliated with
McGill University in order to provide First Year work in Arts,
and took the name of Vancouver College. First Year work in
Arts was offered by Victoria High School when it became Victoria
College by affiliation with McGill University in 1902. In the same
year Vancouver College undertook the Second Year in Arts.
In 1906 an Act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution
for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia, which, in
the same year, established at Vancouver the McGill University
College of British Columbia. The scope of the work undertaken
by this college was gradually increased until at the time it was
taken over by the University of British Columbia it was giving
three years in Arts and Science, and two years in Applied Science.
When the University of British Columbia opened in the autumn
of 1915, both the McGill University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College, which since 1907 had been a part of it, ceased to
exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr.
H. E. Young, Minister of Education, in 1907, when he introduced
a "University Endowment Act." This Aet was followed in 1908
by an Act establishing and incorporating the University of British
Columbia and repealing the old Act of 1890-1. This Act, with its
subsequent amendments, determines the present constitution of the
University.
As authorized by an Act passed by the Provincial Legislature
in 1910, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed a Site
Commission to decide upon a site for the proposed University. The
Commission held its first meeting on May 25th, 1910, in Victoria, 18 The University of British Columbia
and after a thorough examination of the Province recommended
the vicinity of Vancouver. In the autumn the Executive Council
decided to place the University at Point Grey—the site which the
Commission had named as its first choice. In 1911 the Legislature
passed an Act authorizing the Lieutenant-Governor in Council to
grant this site to the University. The grant was increased in 1915,
so that it now consists of 548 acres at the extremity of Point Grey.
The waters of the Gulf of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University Campus. A tract of some 3,000 acres
of Government land immediately adjoining the site, and lying
between it and the City of Vancouver, has been set aside by the
Government in order that University revenue may be provided by
its sale or lease.
In February, 1912, the Hon. H. E. Young, Minister of Education, called for competitive plans which should include plans in
detail for four buildings to be erected immediately, and a block
plan showing all the proposed buildings on the Campus. Messrs.
Sharp and Thompson, of Vancouver, B. C, were the successful
competitors, and were appointed University Architects.
The first Convocation, held on August 21st, 1912, chose Mr.
F. L. Carter-Cotton as first Chancellor of the University. In March,
1913, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed as President
of the University F. F. Wesbrook, M.A, M.D, C.M, LL.D. On
April 4th, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie was elected Chancellor.
Dr. McKechnie has been re-elected continuously since that date
and entered on his eighth term in May, 1939. On the death of
President Wesbrook, October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean of the
Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed acting President, and on
June 1st, 1919, President.
From its opening in 1915 till the Summer of 1925, the University
carried on its work in temporary quarters on part of the site of the
General Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work was commenced on the Science Building at
the permanent site in Point Grey in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on this building was resumed in
1923, and in the Autumn of the same year the contract was let for
the Library. These two buildings, which are of stone and are
fireproof, conform closely to the original plans as prepared by the
architects in 1914. The initial units of these structures, as well
as nine other buildings which are of a less permanent character,
were completed in 1925, and at the beginning of Session 1925-26
the University commenced work in its new quarters.
The Inauguration of the new buildings was held on October 15th
and 16th, 1925, on which occasion honorary degrees were granted
by the University for the first time. Historical Sketch 19
THE  CONSTITUTION  OF   THE   UNIVERSITY
The Constitution of the University is governed by the British
Columbia University Act, B.C.R.S. 1924, c. 265, and Amending
Acts, which provide
That the University shall consist of a Chancellor, Convocation,
Board of Governors, Senate, Faculty Council, and the
Faculties; that the first Convocation shall consist of all
graduates of any university in His Majesty's dominions
resident in the Province two years prior to the date fixed
for the first meeting of Convocation, together with twenty-
five members selected by the Lieutenant-Governor in
Council. After the first Convocation it shall consist of the
Chancellor, Senate, members of the first Convocation, and
all graduates of the University; that the Chancellor shall be
elected by Convocation; that the Board of Governors shall
consist of the Chancellor, President, and nine persons—
three elected by the Senate and six appointed by the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council; that the Senate shall
consist of: (a) The Chancellor, and the President of the
University, who shall be chairman thereof; (b) the deans
and two professors of each of the Faculties elected by
members of the Faculty; (c) three members to be appointed
by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council; (d) the principals
of the Normal Schools; (e) one member elected by the high-
school principals and assistants who are actually engaged in
teaching; (f) one member to be elected by the governing
body of every affiliated college or school in this Province;
(g) fifteen members to be elected by Convocation from the
members thereof; (h) one member elected by the British
Columbia Teachers' Federation.
It is further provided that the University shall be non-sectarian.
The University Act gives the University full powers to grant
such degrees in the several Faculties and different branches of
knowledge as the Senate may from time to time determine. It
reserves for the University the sole right in this Province to confer
degrees, except in Theology, and it expressly enacts that'' No other
university having corporate powers capable of being exercised
within the Province shall be known by the same name, nor shall
any such university have power to grant degrees." LOCATION AND BUILDINGS
Location
The University is situated on the promontory which forms the
western extremity of the Point Grey Peninsula. On three sides it
is bounded by the Gulf of Georgia. The site comprises an area of
548 acres, of which approximately one-half is campus. In all
directions appear snow-capped mountains, strikingly rugged and
impressive.
Buildings
The buildings, planned to meet the requirements of fifteen
hundred students, are of two classes, permanent and semi-permanent. The former were designed by the University architects,
Messrs. Sharp and Thompson, the latter by architects of the
Department of Public Works of the Provincial Government. The
permanent buildings have been erected in the location originally
assigned for them; the others in the quadrangle designated as
"unassigned" in the original plan. By utilizing the "unassigned"
area for the semi-permanent buildings, all the locations intended
for future expansion have been left available.
The entire mechanical equipment of these buildings was
designed after a close study had been made not only of present
requirements, but of the ultimate development of the institution.
This consideration accounts for the fact that only a part of the
present equipment is permanent. After a careful survey of the
whole system, a forced hot water system was found to present
advantages that made its adoption advisable. Direct radiation with
a system of warmed air supply and extraction for ventilation is
used to take care of the heat losses in the buildings. A separate
system of ventilation is installed for all sanitary conveniences, and
a specially constructed system for fume closets. The various
services throughout these buildings, such as hot and cold water,
distilled water, gas and steam for laboratory purposes, compressed
air, etc., with the necessary apparatus, are all of a modern type.
An attempt has been made to reduce vibration and noise to a
minimum by installing all moving apparatus on floating slabs, with
a further insulation of cork.
Library
The University Library contains a little over 120,000 volumes,
and almost 100,000 pamphlets. It includes representative works
in all the eourses offered by the University, and a growing collection
of books in other subjects.   It is notable for its high percentage Location and Buildings 21
of the Transactions and Proceedings of Learned Societies, and
its long runs of scholarly periodicals—the materials essential to
research.
It is one of three Canadian Depositories of the Library of
Congress Catalogue, a collection of 1,700,000 printed cards, valued
at $70,000.00. The alphabetical classification, work on which was
commenced at the receipt of the gift four years ago, is completed,
and between 50,000 and 60,000 new cards, issued each year, are
being interfiled as received.
The Library also possesses a College Art Teaching Equipment
Set, organized and presented by the Carnegie Corporation of New
York. This consists of about 185 specially selected works covering
the fine and applied arts, and of more than 2,000 reproductions,
photographed or coloured, illustrating these.
Another notable gift to the University, made by the Carnegie
Corporation of New York, is the College Music Set. This consists
of almost 1,000 records representing musical development in all
its forms, with reproducing instruments specially designed for a
large auditorium, and a collection of books on musical theory and
history, together with a large number of orchestral scores. The
Set is regularly used for student recitals, and to illustrate lectures
on the appreciation of music.
The Library receives regularly over 1,000 serial publications.
The book collection is classified throughout on the Congressional
system.
Books to which the teaching staff have specially referred their
students are placed in a " Reserved'' class. These are shelved apart
from the main collection, and are loaned only for use in the building, and for a limited period.
Unbound periodicals are not loaned. Bound periodicals, and
books that are costly, rare, or unsuitable for general circulation,
are loaned only under special conditions.
While the Library is primarily for the staff and students of
the University, its resources are available to those of the general
public engaged in research or special study, and who make personal
application to the Librarian for the privilege of its use. Such
persons are known as "extra-mural Readers." By order of the
Board of Governors a fee of $1.00 per calendar year is charged
such readers. In addition, they pay necessary mailing costs, a
deposit being required from those unable to call personally for
books loaned.
The Library also administers the book collection of the University
Extension Department. This consists of about 600 volumes, and
is increasing as the Department's work develops. 22 The University op British Columbia
The Extension Department's collection also includes more than
1,000 plays, for the service of the Dramatic Study Groups it has
organized throughout the Province.
The Extension Department's book and play collections are loanable only to those enrolled in its study groups or courses.
The University is deeply indebted to all who have made gifts to
the Library. These have been both valuable and numerous. Their
number prevents detailed acknowledgment, but recognition should
be made of a number of sets of transactions, and complete or partial
sets of scientific periodicals, given by societies and friends of the
University. The most interesting and valuable of these gifts are
listed in the annual report of the Library to the Senate.
Gymnasium
This building was completed in 1929 and presented to the
University by the Alma Mater Society. It is situated adjacent to
the tennis courts and conveniently close to the playing fields. The
style of architecture and exterior finish harmonizes well with that
of the other buildings on the campus. The playing floor has an
area of 6,000 square feet, and is surrounded on three sides by tiers
of benches which will accommodate 1,400 persons. In the space
behind these seats are located the dressing rooms, drying rooms,
locker rooms and shower baths. Approximately one-third of this
space has been set aside for the exclusive use of the women
students. The offices of the instructors in physical education are
located in the gymnasium. In the building are included also a
properly equipped training and first-aid room, an equipment room
and a kitchen. Facilities for general gymnasium and indoor athletic
work have been provided.
Stadium and Playing Fields
In accordance with the original landscape plan prepared by
Mawson in 1913, the main playing field area, consisting of about
16 acres, is situated east of the East Mall and north of the University Boulevard. Development work was started early in
January, 1931, as an aid to the acute unemployment situation, and
was made possible by funds provided chiefly by subscriptions from
the Faculty, students, and friends of the University. Much of the
labour was obtained through the courtesy of the Relief Department
of the City of Vancouver. Twenty thousand cubic yards of soil
and gravel were used to bring the track and field to grade. The
total cost to date has been approximately $20,000. Location and Buildings 23
In addition to the main playing field of the stadium, there are
three other full-size fields and a number of smaller areas set aside
for outdoor games.
The first section of the grandstand for the stadium was erected
in the summer of 1937 on the west side of the main playing field.
It is a covered, reinforced concrete structure, 126 feet long and
provides seating accommodation for 1,600 spectators. On either
side are two wooden bleacher sections of 500 seats each. The plan
provides for the ultimate continuance of the main section around
the field and therefore the present bleachers are constructed in
movable sections. Underneath the present main stand there are
locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers, ticket booths and specially
constructed drying rooms. Space is also provided for two squash
racket courts, which will be completed as soon as funds are available. Funds for the construction of the grandstand were provided
through a $40,000 bond issue by the Alma Mater Society. Each
student contributes three dollars annually towards the liquidation
of these bonds. The Provincial Government has undertaken to
assume the annual charges for interest on the bonds.
The Brock Memorial Building
In connection with the celebration of the Twenty-first Anniversary of the opening of the University in 1936, it was decided
that a memorial be established by general appeal to students,
graduates and friends of the University throughout Canada. A
Committee representing all branches of the University decided
that the memorial should take the form of a student union building,
dedicated to the memory of the late Dean of Applied Science,
Reginald W. Brock and Mrs. Brock, by whose tragic deaths as a
result of an aeroplane accident the University suffered a great loss.
The original fund for the construction of the building was
subscribed by relatives of Dean and Mrs. Brock, friends of the
University throughout Canada and the United States, Alumni
and Students of the University, and former colleagues of Dean
Brock. The balance of the amount required to complete construction was provided by the students in cash and through a bond
issue of the Alma Mater Society. Furnishings for the building
were provided from a fund raised over a period of years by the
Women's Union Building Committee of the University.
The building is situated adjacent to the playing fields and
gymnasium. In it are located the offices of the Alma Mater Society
and various clubs and student activities. The building contains,
also, common rooms, lunch and tea rooms, and accommodation for
social activities. In architectural design and exterior finish, it
harmonizes well with the other buildings on the campus.
The Brock Memorial Building was dedicated in January, 1940. 24 The University op British Columbia
Forest Products Laboratories
The Forest Products Laboratories of Canada, Vancouver Laboratory, which is maintained by the Forest Service of the Department
of Mines and Resources, Canada, occupies three buildings provided
and kept up through a co-operative agreement between the
University and the Dominion Government.
Plan of Campus
The plan at the back of the Calendar shows the buildings which
have been erected and indicates the nature of their construction.
It also shows their relation to the other groups of buildings which
are to be erected in the future.
ENDOWMENTS  AND  DONATIONS
It has beeome a tradition for each Graduating Class to make a
gift to the University. That of the Class of 1939 took the form of
a Public Address System.
A list of the other most important gifts received during last
year is given below under the various departments or in the Annual
Report of the Library.

GENERAL INFORMATION
The Session
The academic year begins on the First of September and ends
on the last day of August. The Winter Session is divided into two
terms—the first, September to December; the second, January to
May. The Summer Session consists of seven weeks' instruction in
July and August. For "Admission to the University," see Page 33,
and for "Registration and Attendance," see Page 35.
Courses of Study
For the Session of 1940-41 the University offers instruction in
each of the three Faculties, Arts and Science, Applied Science
(including Nursing), and Agriculture, leading to the degrees of
Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Applied
Science, Bachelor of Science in Forestry and Bachelor of Science in
Agriculture. A course is given in the Faculty of Arts and Science
leading to a Diploma of Social Service, and a Teacher Training
Course is given for graduates. Advanced courses of instruction
and facilities for research leading to a Master's degree are offered
in each Faculty. Admission to these advanced courses, or to the
privileges of research, does not in itself imply admission to
candidacy for a higher degree.
Academic Dress
The undergraduate's gown is black in colour and of the ordinary
stuff material, of ankle length, and with long sleeves and the yoke
edged with khaki cord. The graduate's gown is the same, without
cord. The Bachelor's hood is of the Cambridge pattern, black
bordered with the distinctive colour of the particular Faculty, the
Bachelor of Commerce hood being differentiated by the addition
of a white cord; the Master's hood is the same, lined with the
distinctive colour. The colours are, for Arts and Science, the
University blue; for Applied Science, red; for Agriculture, maize.
Department of University Extension
Under a grant from the British Dominions and Colonies Fund
of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the University of
British Columbia organized early in 1936 a Department of University Extension. This department carries on most of the usual
University Extension activities, including a programme for Adult
Education.
The grant from the Carnegie Corporation enabled the University
to collect much valuable information on the special requirements
of Adult Education in British Columbia.    Various experimental 28 The University of British Columbia
projects were tried, and, based upon the experience gained, were
rejected, modified, or accepted as the basis for a more permanent
programme. As a result a practicable policy has evolved—one
adapted to local conditions, sound in educational concept, comprehensive in scope, yet within the financial resources of the University. Through the activities of the Department of University
Extension, the University is contributing enduring benefits to
the educational and social welfare of the Province.
During the past year, the University, through the Department
of University Extension, has been co-operating with the Dominion
and Provincial Departments of Labour in the Dominion-Provincial Youth Training Plan. The Department of University Extension has also been co-operating with the Dominion Department of
Fisheries in providing an educational programme for British
Columbia fishermen.
The present activities of the Department include the following:
(a) Extension Lectures.
Through the Department arrangements are made for
members of the University Teaching Staff to give lectures
at various centres throughout the Province.
(b) Evening Classes.
Each year a number of Evening Classes on various subjects are held in the city of Vancouver.
(c) Dramatics.
During the winter, short courses in dramatics are held
at various centres in the Province. Each summer a longer
and more comprehensive course is given at the University.
A play loan library has been established.
(d) Visual Instruction.
(i) Lantern and Film Slide Service. Approximately 400
sets of lantern and film slides, many with lectures, are
available for loan to schools, churches, and other organizations. A catalogue of these may be obtained
upon request.
(ii) Motion Picture Service. A Film Library of up-to-
date motion picture films has been established. Films
from the Dominion Government Motion Picture
Bureau are distributed in British Columbia through
the Extension Department. A catalogue listing the
films may be obtained upon application.
(e) Study Groups.
Study group courses are offered each year. These include :
(i)  Economics and Public Affairs. General Information 29
(ii) History of the Theatre,
(iii) British Columbia History,
(iv) Modern Literature.
(v) Practical Psychology.
(vi) Credit Unions.
(vii) Co-operatives.
(f) Short Courses.
Short courses in various subjects are offered by the Department during both the Winter and Summer Sessions.
(g) Extension Library.
The University Extension Library is a special collection
designed to meet the needs of adults who wish to do systematic reading on any subject.
(h) Radio.
Each year the Department offers a series of educational
broadcasts. During the U. B. C. Music Hour, recordings
from the Carnegie Music Set are played.
(i)   Art and Music.
The facilities supplied by the Carnegie Art Teaching Set
and the Carnegie Music Set enable the Department to offer
courses in this field.
(j)  Youth Training Schools.
Through the co-operation of the Dominion and Provincial
Departments of Labour, the University conducts a series of
Folk Schools at many centres throughout the Province. A
longer course for Leadership Training is held at the
University.
(k) Educational Programme for British Columbia Fishermen.
Through assistance received from the Dominion Department of Fisheries, the University has been able to offer
courses on Credit Unions and Co-operatives to British
Columbia fishermen.
(I)   Public Relations.
Frequently items of interest to the public are prepared
and released to the press. The Department of University
Extension offers its services to any individual, group, or
organization requiring information regarding the University.
Full particulars regarding any of the above services will be
furnished upon application to the Director, Department of University Extension. 30 The University of British Columbia
University Health Service
This service was begun in 1925 when the Lieutenant-Governor
in Council, upon the recommendation of the Provincial Health
Officer, appointed a Medical Health Officer for the University Area.
In the Fall of 1927, the Provincial Health Officer added to the
University Health Service a Public Health Nurse, thus commencing the continuous operation of a full-time local Health Department
on the Campus and University Endowment Area,
In November, 1936, the University Endowment Area became
part of the Metropolitan Health Area under the direction of the
Metropolitan Health Committee, thus affording the University the
extra services and facilities enjoyed by the larger organization,
which provides through its Health Units a Public Health Service
to the entire Greater Vancouver Area. The University Area is
now Health Unit 3A of the Greater Vancouver Area.
The offices of the University Health Service are located in the
Auditorium Building. The first aid furniture and supplies for
this office were the generous gift of the Graduating Class of 1927.
Purposes of the University Health Service
The first purpose of the Health Service for Students is to supervise the physical and mental health of the student from the time
of admission to University until graduation, so that as the student
takes his place in the outside world he will not be handicapped by
physical defects or mental breakdown during the period in which
he is adjusting himself to his career.
On admission to University, each student is given a complete
physical examination; also all students who have not had an examination by this University for more than four years. All students
who have been absent from the University for a year or more are
to report to the Health Service Office within a month of return.
All students who are to participate in strenuous athletics will be
given an examination to determine their status of physical fitness.
Later the medical officer has a personal conference during the
Fall term with those who received examination. This conference
is for the purpose of individualizing the previous examination and
for the re-checking and "following-up" of any physical defects
which were found at the time. Evidence, satisfactory to the
medical officer, of successful immunization against smallpox is
required. Preventive vaccinations and inoculations are given by
the Health Service.
The Medical Officer is available at specified hours for consultations with students on health problems. Students having problems
dealing with emotional and personality difficulties may consult
with the Director of Mental Hygiene. General Information 31
One of the most important tasks of the Health Service is the
control of communicable disease. Much valuable time can be
saved the student body by the prompt and immediate application
of preventive measures in checking the spread of communicable
disease.
Tuberculosis  Control
Because tuberculosis occupies first place as a cause of death
of persons of college age, it is given special attention. The University Health Service gives, therefore, to each new student at the
time of his entrance examination a tuberculin skin test and an
X-ray of the chest of every student who shows a reaction to
tuberculin. This project is of very great value, for when tuberculosis is diagnosed and treatment instituted before physical
breakdown occurs, the patient is saved from years of invalidism
and perhaps death, and his fellow students can be protected from
infection.
Rules Governing Communicable and Other Illnesses
Students developing any illness or suffering from any injury
while on the Campus should apply for first aid to the University
Health Service. This is particularly required if the student
develops any illness of a communicable nature, including the
Common Cold.
Students developing any illness or suffering any injury while
at home, boarding house, fraternity house, etc., are required to
report the same to the University Health Service. The development of any communicable disease in a University Student or
any person living in the same house, must be reported by the student
to the University Health Service without delay. Students exposed
to a communicable disease may be permitted, by special order of
the Medical Health Officer, to attend the University for a prescribed
period, despite the exposure.
Such students shall report daily (or oftener, at the discretion
of the Medical Health Officer) to the University Health Service
for such prescribed period. Failure to so report will result in
immediate exclusion from the University.
Students absent on account of illness must present Medical Certificates. If the absence occurs during the session, the student must
appear in person, with the certificate, at the University Health
Service immediately on return to the University, and before
attendance upon class work. The University Health Service will
examine the person concerned and will immediately forward the
certificate, with report thereon, to the Dean of the Faculty. If the
absence occurs during the examinations, the medical certificate 32 The University of British Columbia
must be received by the Dean of the Faculty within two days after
the termination of the examination period. A medical certificate
must show the nature and the period of the disability. Medical
report forms may be obtained from the Health Service Office.
The Health Service is a preventive service and can not provide
treatment for sick students.
Summer Session
The University Health Service provides a Health Service for
students attending the Summer Session.    Details of this Service
may be found in the Summer School announcement.
Physical Education
Physical Education was organized at the University during the
session 1935-36. A physical education programme contributes to
the health of the student body by encouraging participation in all
forms of athletic games, and by offering classes in physical training
suited to the needs of the various groups of students.
The work for the present is under the general supervision of a
committee appointed by the President of the University. There are
divisions for both men and women.
The work is on a voluntary basis and carries no University
credit. The activities are limited by the accommodation at the
gymnasium, but include for men: badminton, basketball, boxing,
cross-country running, fencing, golf, gymnastics, volleyball, wrestling, track and field, football and rugby. The women's activities
include: archery, badminton, basketball, dancing, gymnastics, light
apparatus and volleyball.
Series of lectures are offered in recreational leadership, healthful
living and the principles of physical education. Instruction is given
also in the theory and practice of teaching physical education in
schools, playgrounds and recreational centres.
The geographical location of the University precludes the possibility of any extensive inter-collegiate athletic competition and
consequently great emphasis is placed for both men and women
upon intramural athletics.
University Employment Bureau
The objects of the Employment Bureau are to provide students
with summer employment, to provide part-time work for students
during the Winter Session, and to help students in obtaining
positions after graduation. This service is for employers seeking
help and for students desiring employment. Those who know of
positions vacant are requested to notify the Bureau. Correspondence
should be addressed to the Employment Bureau, Registrar's Office. Admission to the University 33
Dean of Women
During the session the Dean of Women may be consulted by
parents and students on matters pertaining to living conditions,
vocational guidance, and other questions that directly affect the
social and intellectual life of the women students.
Board and Residence
A list of boarding-houses, which receive men or women students,
but not both, may be obtained from the Registrar. Men and women
students are not permitted to lodge in the same house, unless they
are members of the same family, or receive special permission from
the Senate. Women students under twenty-five years of age are
permitted to occupy suites in apartment houses only when accompanied by some older person. Any such arrangement must be made
in consultation with the Dean of Women. The Dean of Women also
undertakes the inspection and approval of the boarding houses
listed for women. The cost of good board and lodging is from $25
per month upwards; of a room alone, $8 to $12 per month. A grill
is operated under the supervision of the University, and lunch,
afternoon tea and light supper may be obtained there at very
reasonable prices. Refreshments at social functions are also
supplied.
General Conduct
The University authorities do not assume responsibilities which
naturally rest with parents. This being so, it is the policy of the
University to rely on the good sense and on the home training of
students for the preservation of good moral standards.
ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY
All enquiries relating to admission to the University should be
addressed to the Registrar.
The accommodation for students in the University is limited.
The University, therefore, reserves the right to limit the attendance.
For the Session 1940-41 the number of students in the Second
Year of the course in Nursing and Health (including Combined
Course students, and students entering upon the Third Year of the
Double Course) will be limited to 20, and in the Teacher Training
Course to 60.
1. Except under special circumstances, no student under the
age of sixteen is admitted to the University. For admission to the
Second Year of the course in Nursing (or the Third Year of the 34 The University op British Columbia
Double Course in Arts and Nursing) a student must be eighteen
years of age, and for admission to any course in Social Service,
twenty-one years of age.
2. Candidates for admission to the courses in the First Year of
the Faculty of Arts and Science or the Faculty of Agriculture
and to the course in Nursing in Applied Science are required to
pass the University Entrance (Junior Matriculation) Examination
of the Province of British Columbia or to submit certificates showing that they have passed an equivalent examination elsewhere.
Students over 18 years of age with full '' Normal Entrance'' standing, who hold Normal School certificates, are admitted to the
University as having full University Entrance standing. Special
regulations are prescribed for admission to courses in Applied
Science, and are given under the heading of "Admission" in the
Applied Science Section of the Calendar.
3. Students who have passed the Senior Matriculation Examination are admitted to the courses of the Second Year in the
Faculty of Arts and Science. Students who have partial Senior
Matriculation standing, obtained in 1927 or subsequently, will be
granted credit in the First Year in each subject in which they have
made 50 per cent, or over, or in each paper in which they have
made 50 per cent, or over, in so far as these papers correspond
with those of the First Year.
4. A student who has a failure in a subject of the University
Entrance examination standing against him will not be admitted
to the University.
5. The University Entrance and Senior Matriculation Examinations of the Province of British Columbia are conducted by the
High School and University Matriculation Board of the Province.
This Board consists of members appointed by the Department of
Education and by the University. The requirements for these
examinations are stated in the publication, "Requirements for
University Entrance and Senior Matriculation," issued by the
University. The courses of study for the various grades in the
high schools are given in the '' Programme of Studies for the High
Schools," issued by the Department of Education.
6. Certificates or diplomas showing that a candidate has passed
the Matriculation Examination of another University will be
accepted in lieu of the University Entrance or Senior Matriculation
Examinations if the Faculty concerned considers that the examination has covered the same subjects and required the same standards. If, however, the examinations cover some but not all of
the necessary subjects, the candidate will be required to pass the
examinations in the subjects not covered. Registration and Attendance 35
7. A candidate who wishes to enter by certificates other than a
Matriculation or University Entrance certificate issued in British
Columbia should submit to the Registrar the original certificates.
If he wishes these returned to him, he must present also a copy of
each certificate for record at the University. He should under no
circumstances come to the University without having first obtained
from the Registrar a statement of the value of the certificates he
holds, as these may lack one or more essential subjects, or the work
done in a subject may not be adequate, or, again, the percentage
gained may not be sufficiently high. Moreover, it must be remembered that a certificate may admit to one Faculty and not to
another. When an applicant's diploma or certificate does not show
the marks obtained in the several subjects of the examination, he
must arrange to have a statement of his marks sent to the Registrar
by the Education Department or University issuing such diploma
or certificate. The fee for examination of certificates is $2.00. This
fee must accompany the application.
8. A student of another University applying for exemption from
any subject or subjects which he has already studied is required
to submit with his application a Calendar of the University in
which he has previously studied, together with a complete statement of the course he has followed and a certificate of the standing
gained in the several subjects.* The Faculty concerned will determine the standing of such a student in this University. The fee for
the examination of certificates is $2.00. This fee must accompany
the application.
REGISTRATION AND ATTENDANCE
Those who intend to register as students of the University are
required to make application to the Registrar, on forms to be
obtained from the Registrar's Office. This application should be
made in person or by mail early in August, or as soon as the results
of the Matriculation examinations are known, and must be accompanied by the Registration Fee of $5.00. (See regulations in reference to "Admission to the University," Page 33.)
Registration for the Second Year of the Course in Nursing and
Health (including the Combined Course and the Third Year of the
Double Course) is limited to 20, and for the Teacher Training
Course to 60.
Application for admission to Second Year Nursing or the Teacher
Training Course must be made to the Registrar on or before August
15th. A selection of candidates will be made immediately thereafter
•For the conditions under which exemption is granted in the Faculty of
Arts and Science, see "Courses Leading to the Degree of B.A." 36 The University of British Columbia
on the basis of qualifications. Forms of application for admission to
these courses may be obtained from the Registrar's Office.
The last days for Registration are: for First and Second Year
students, Wednesday, September 18th; for other Undergraduate
students of the regular Winter Session, Friday, September 20th;
for Graduate students, and for students in Extra-Sessional Classes
and Directed Reading Courses, Friday, October 18th.
1. There are four classes of students:—
(a) Graduate students—Students who are pursuing courses of
study in a Faculty in which they hold a degree, whether
they are proceeding to a Master's degree or not. Students,
however, who are proceeding to a Bachelor's degree in
another course in the same Faculty in which they hold a
degree, or in another Faculty, will register as undergraduates.
(b) Full undergraduates—Students proceeding to a degree in
any Faculty who have passed all the examinations precedent
to the year in which they are registered.
(c) Conditioned undergraduates — Students proceeding to a
degree with defects in their standing which do not prevent
their entering a higher year under the regulations governing "Examinations and Advancement" of the Faculty in
which they are registered.
(d) Partial students — Students not belonging to one of the
three preceding classes.   (See 7, below.)
2. All students are required to register at the office of the
Registrar on or before the last day for registration, to furnish the
information necessary for the University records, to enroll for
the particular classes which they wish to attend, and to sign the
following declaration:
'' I hereby accept and submit myself to the statutes, rules, regulations, and ordinances of The University of British Columbia, and
of the Faculty or Faculties in which I am registered, and to any
amendments thereto which may be made while I am a student of
the University, and I promise to observe the same."
In the information furnished for the University records, students
are requested to state what church they propose to make their place
of worship. This information is available for any of the city
churches desiring it.
3. A late registration fee of $2.00 will be charged all students
who register after the above dates.
No registration for Undergraduate students of the regular Winter Session will be accepted after Monday, October 7th (two weeks Registration and Attendance 37
beyond the date when lectures begin) without the special permission of the Faculty concerned, and a candidate so accepted for
registration may be required to take fewer courses than the regular
year's work.
4. Students registering for the first time must present the
certificates which constitute their qualification for admission to
the course of study for which they wish to register. The Registrar
is empowered to register all duly qualified students. Doubtful cases
will be dealt with by the Faculty concerned.
5. Students doing work in two academic years will register in
the lower year and fill out their course cards in such a way as to
make clear which courses are required to complete the lower year.
6. Students desiring to make a change in the course for which
they have registered must apply to the Registrar on the proper
form for a "change of course." Except in special circumstances,
no change will be allowed after the first week of the session. If the
application is approved by the Faculty concerned, the Registrar
will give the necessary notifications.
7. Partial students, who are not proceeding to a degree, are not
normally required to pass an examination for admission, but before
registering they must produce a certificate showing that they have
satisfied the Dean and the Heads of the Departments concerned
that they are qualified to pursue with advantage the course of
study which they propose to undertake.
8. Students are required to attend at least seven-eighths of the
lectures in each course that they take. Admission to a lecture or
laboratory and credit for attendance may be refused by the Instructor for lateness, misconduct, inattention or neglect of duty. Absence
consequent on illness or domestic affliction may be excused only by
the Dean of the Faculty concerned, and medical certificates or other
evidence must be presented. If the absence occurs during the session,
the student must appear in person, with the certificate, at the University Health Service immediately on return to the University,
and before attendance upon class work. The University Health
Service will examine the person concerned and will immediately
forward the certificate, with report thereon, to the Dean of the
Faculty. If the absence occurs during the examinations, the
certificate must be sent to the Dean of the Faculty within two
days after the termination of the examination period. A medical
certificate must show the nature and the period of the disability.
Medical report forms may be obtained from the Dean's office. In
cases of deficient attendance students may (with the sanction of
the Dean and the Head of the Department concerned) be excluded
from the Christmas or the final examinations in a course; but, in 38 The University op British Columbia
the case of a final examination, unless the unexcused absences
exceed one-fourth of the total number of lectures in a course, such
student may be permitted to sit for supplemental examination.
(See regulation in each Faculty in reference to "Examinations and
Advancement.")
9. All candidates for a degree must make formal application
for graduation at least one month previous to the Congregation at
which they expect to obtain the degree. Special forms for this
purpose may be obtained from the Registrar's office. Fees 39

winter session students only, unless otherwise stated, and marks
obtained in summer session courses are not taken into account in

less than 75 per cent, of the possible marks.
5. To be eligible for a General Proficiency Scholarship a student

of units shall be determined on the basis of the required number of
units to be chosen in a manner most advantageous to the students.
6. Unless otherwise specified in the Calendar notice, no student
may enjoy the proceeds of more than one scholarship in the same
academic year, and the scholarships thus relinquished will be
awarded to the candidates next in order of merit. Winners of more

received from the private donor or donors.
12. The Senate of the University of British Columbia reserves
the right so to change the terms under which any exhibition,
scholarship or prize may be established at the University of British

SCHOLARSHIPS ANNOUNCED BY
THE UNIVERSITY BUT AWARDED BY
OTHER INSTITUTIONS
The Rhodes Scholarship *
A Rhodes Scholarship is tenable at the University of Oxford
and may be held for three years. Since, however, the majority
of Rhodes Scholars obtain standing which enables them to take a
degree in two years, appointments are made for two years in the
first instance, and a Rhodes Scholar who may wish to remain for
a third year will be expected to present a definite plan of study for
that period satisfactory to his College and to the Rhodes Trustees.
Rhodes Scholars may be allowed, if the conditions are approved
by their own College and by the Oxford Secretary to the Rhodes
Trustees, either to postpone their third year, returning to Oxford
for it after a period of work in their own countries, or to spend
their third year in post-graduate work at any University of Great
Britain, and in special cases at any University on the continent of
Europe, the overseas Dominions, or in the United States, but not
in the country of their origin.
•See Paragraph 1, Page 43. Medals, Scholarships and Prizes 63
The stipend of a Rhodes Scholarship is fixed at £400 per year.
At most colleges, and for most men, this sum is sufficient to meet a
Rhodes Scholar's necessary expenses for Term-time and Vacations,
but Scholars who can afford to supplement it by, say, £50 per year
from their own resources will find it advantageous to do so.
A candidate to be eligible must:
1. Be a British subject, with at least five years' domicile in
Canada, and unmarried. He must have passed his nineteenth,
but not have passed his twenty-fifth birthday on October 1st
of the year for which he is elected.
2. Have reached such a stage in his course at one of the Universities of Canada that he will have completed at least two
years at the University in question by October 1st of the year
for which he is elected.
Candidates may apply either for the Province in which they
have their ordinary private domicile, home, or residence, or for
any Province in which they have received at least two years of their
college education before applying.
In that section of the will in which he defined the general type
of scholar he desired, Mr. Rhodes wrote as follows:
"My desire being that the students who shall be elected to the
Scholarships shall not be merely bookworms, I direct that in the
election of a student to a Scholarship regard shall be had to:
1. Has literary and scholastic attainments.
2. His fondness for and success in manly outdoor sports such as
cricket, football and the like.
3. His qualities of manhood, truth, courage, devotion to duty,
sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship, and
4. His exhibition during school days of moral force of character
and of instincts to lead and to take an interest in his schoolmates, for those latter attributes will be likely in after life
to guide him to esteem the performance of public duties as
his highest aim.''
Except in special cases, all Scholarships (to which elections
are made in war-time) will, until further notice, be suspended until
after the war. Should any Scholar-elect wish to make a special
application to be allowed to come to Oxford during the war, he
should apply to the Rhodes Trustees, through the General Secretary
of the Rhodes Scholarships in the country in which he is elected.
Each application will be considered on its merits, and the Rhodes
Trustees reserve complete discretion in deciding each case, but, as 64 The University of British Columbia
general indications of the policy which the Trustees are likely to
adopt, the following points may be noted:
1. In the absence of exceptional considerations, such as those
mentioned under (5), permission will not be given to come to
Oxford in order to take Final Honour Schools or Special
(War) Courses in non-scientific subjects, such as Literae
Humaniores, Law, Modern Greats or History, or to undertake
research in these subjects.
2. The same applies to Final Honour Schools, or Special (War)
Courses, in the ordinary scientific or mathematical subjects,
but application to engage in special and approved scientific
research will be more favourably considered.
3. Medical students and researchers will normally be given permission to take up their Scholarships, subject, however, to
the advice of the authorities of Oxford Medical School upon
the advisability of Overseas students entering upon medical
courses in England, and subject, further, in the case of
researchers, to the facilities which may exist at Oxford for
research in the particular investigation proposed by the applicant.
4. Permission will in no case be granted if the policy of the
Government of the Scholar's country of origin opposes his
leaving his country. If, for example, conscription or compulsory military training has been introduced in that country,
permission will be granted only as explained under (5).
5. The Trustees will be prepared to take into consideration
special personal circumstances, e.g., disqualification for military or other war service, disablement through war service,
or the urgency or importance of the work which the Scholar
proposes to take up at Oxford.
The Trustees hope when peace is restored to revive all suspended
Scholarships, but cannot definitely bind themselves to do so until
the time has arrived and the practical possibilities are known. The
Trustees reserve the right to cancel any suspended Scholarship if
circumstances shall have supervened which, in their opinion, make
it undesirable that the Scholar should hold his Scholarship.
Should a Scholar-elect, whose Scholarship has been suspended,
marry before he applies to take up his Scholarship, although the
Trustees will not consider the Scholarship as automatically forfeited, they will not be prepared to confirm it except in special
circumstances.
Suspended Scholarships, if revived, will be tenable for the
normal period. Applications will be entertained from Scholars
who wish to spend a shorter time at Oxford, although no tenure Medals, Scholarships and Prizes 65
of less than one year will be permitted, save in exceptional circumstances.
The Selection for any year is normally made in the previous
December, and each candidate is required to make application to
the Secretary of the Committee of Selection of the Province in
which he wishes to compete not later than October 31st. Application forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office or from
the Secretary or Assistant Secretary of the Selection Committee.
As the regulations are subject to change, prospective candidates
are advised to obtain full information from W. Thomas Brown,
Esq., 470 Granville Street, Vancouver, B. C, Secretary of the
Selection Committee for British Columbia, or from the Assistant
Secretary, Arthur J. Johnson, Esq., c/o Foreign Exchange Control
Board, 330 West Pender St., Vancouver, B. C.
The French Government Scholarship*
A scholarship of 18,000 francs is donated by the French Government for one year's post-graduate study in France. It is tenable
for one year and is contingent upon the voting of the credits for
the year by the French Chambers. As this contingency applies to
every item of the French budget, the scholarship may be considered
as permanent.
The award is made by the French Consul for Western Canada,
residing in Vancouver, on the recommendation of the Head of the
Department of French in the University.
Applications must be in the hands of the French Consul by April
15th. Further information concerning the terms of the award may
be obtained from the Registrar.
The Exhibition of 1851 Scholarship*
Under the revised conditions for the award of the Exhibition
of 1851 Scholarship in Science, the University of British Columbia
is included in the list of Universities from which nominations for
scholarships allotted to Canada may be made. These scholarships
of £275 per annum are tenable, ordinarily, for two years. Scholarship winners with special needs may receive additional money
grants during the year of their tenure. They are granted only to
British subjects of not more than 26 years of age who have already
completed a full University course and given evidence of capacity
for scientific investigation. The scholarships are open to graduates
of any University who have spent not less than three years in the
study of Science.  It is not the intention of the Commissioners to
•See Paragraph 1, Page 43. 66 The University of British Columbia
invite recommendations for their Overseas Research Awards during
the continuance of hostilities.
Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire War
Memorial Scholarship (Overseas)*
This fund was established by the I.O.D.E. in order to perpetuate
the memory of the men and women who gave their lives in the
defence of the Empire in the Great War. Nine post-graduate
scholarships to the value of $1400 each are offered annually—one
in each province of the Dominion. The conditions under which
they are awarded may be obtained from the Registrar. Applications must be submitted by October 15th of each year.

SUBJECTS NOT IN THIS TIME TABLE  FACULTY OF ARTS AND SCIENCE
The degrees offered in this Faculty are Bachelor of Arts (B.A.),
Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com.), and Master of Arts (M.A.).
Courses which do not lead to degrees are offered in Teacher
Training and Social Work.
COURSES LEADING TO THE DEGREE OF B.A.
The degree of B.A. is granted with Honours or as a General
Course degree. A General Course degree will be granted on completion of courses amounting to 60 units chosen in conformity
with Calendar regulations. No distinction is made between General
Course and Honours students in the First and Second Years,
except as regards prerequisites for later work, but in the Third and
Fourth Years there are special requirements for Honours students.
Students holding the degree of B.Com. from this University may
proceed to the degree of B.A. in one year by completing 15
additional units of work open to students in their Third and
Fourth Years, provided that their additional units are chosen so
as to complete the requirements for the B.A. degree.
It is possible to obtain the B.A. and B.Com. degrees concurrently
in five years on completion of 75 units chosen so as to cover the
requirements for both degrees.
Double courses are offered in Arts and Science and Applied
Science leading to the degrees of B.A. and B.A.Sc., B.A. and
B.A.Se. (in Nursing), B.A. and B.S.F., and B.Com. and B.S.F.
For the regulations governing these, see the section Double Courses
at the end of the Calendar.
Credits obtained at the Summer Session (see University Summer Session) may be combined with Winter Session credits to
complete the 60 units required for the degree of B.A. The degree
of B.A. will not be granted within three years from Senior
Matriculation nor within four years from University Entrance.
The maximum credit for Summer Session work in any one
calendar year is 6 units; and the maximum credit for work other
than that of the regular Summer and Winter Sessions is 3 units
in each academic year, and 15 units in all subsequent to Senior
Matriculation or First Year Arts.
No credit will be granted for work done at other universities in
the same academic year in which work has been attempted at this
University, whether in the Summer Session or in the Winter Session
or otherwise. Extra-mural work done at other universities prior
to registration at this University may be accepted, if approved by
the Faculty, but may not exceed 3 units in respect of any one 78 Faculty of Arts and Science
academic year or 15 units in all subsequent to Senior Matriculation.
If a student is granted credit for extra-mural work taken elsewhere,
the number of units which he may take at this University without
attendance at a Winter or Summer Session will be correspondingly
reduced.
Pending the establishment of a department of Music in the
University of British Columbia, six units of undergraduate credit
towards a B.A. degree may be granted for music to a student who
holds at the time of graduation any one of the following diplomas:
Associate of the Toronto Conservatory of Music (A.T.C.M.), Licentiate of McGill Conservatorium (L.Mus.), Licentiate of the Royal
Schools of Music, London (L.R.S.M.), Licentiate of Trinity College
of Music, London (L.T.C.L.), or an equivalent diploma or certificate from other schools of Music which may be accepted by the
University of British Columbia. If the student's work in music is
done concurrently with the usual University work of the Third and
Fourth Years, the credit will be assigned in the Fourth Year; if a
student enters Third Year University having already acquired the
diploma, the credits will normally be assigned evenly between the
Third and Fourth Years. No credits for music will be granted in
the First and Second Years and no student may get credit for music
until the other requirements for the B.A. degree have been satisfied.
Candidates for the degree of B.A. are advised to attend at least
one Winter Session, preferably that of the Fourth Year.
Courses are described in terms of units. A unit normally consists
of one lecture hour (or one continuous laboratory period of not less
than two or more than three hours) each week throughout the
session, or two lecture hours (or equivalent laboratory periods)
throughout a single term.
Note 1. Students in any of the affiliated Theological Colleges
who file with the Registrar a written statement expressing their
intention of graduating in Theology will be allowed to offer in each
year of their Arts course, in place of optional subjects set down in
the Calendar for the year and the course in which they are registered, Religious Knowledge options, to the extent of three units
taken from the following list: Hebrew, Biblical Literature, New
Testament Greek, Church History, Christian Ethics, and Apologetics.

in that language.
4. Except in the case of beginners' courses, no course in a
language may be taken by a student who has not offered that
language for entrance to the University. A beginners' course in
a language may not be taken for credit by a student who has
obtained credit for that language at entrance.
5. A student taking three languages in the first two years (18
units) may defer the course selected under Section 1 (e) to the
Third or Fourth Year, and a student taking four science courses
(12 units) may defer the course selected under Section 1 (d) to
the Third or Fourth Year.
Note. Students thinking of entering Applied Science are referred
to the list of subjects required to be taken by them in First Year
Arts and to the regulations in reference to these, given under
Admission and General Outline of Courses in Faculty of Applied
Science. They are advised to attend the noon hour talks on the
choice of a profession and on the life and work in vocations likely
to appeal to Applied Science graduates.
Third and Fourth Years
The requirements of the Third and Fourth Years consist of 30
units, of which students must take in their Third Year not less
than 15 units. The graduation standing is determined by the results
of the Third and Fourth Years combined. Third and Fourth Years 81
A. General Course Curriculum
1. For the General Course a student must select two major
subjects according to either of the following schemes :*
a. A minimum of 9 units in one subject and a minimum of 6
units in another subject, both subjects to be chosen from
one of the following groups:
(1) Bacteriology, Botany, Chemistry, Geology and Geography, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, Zoology.
(2) Economics, Education (not more than six units and only
for those who have completed their Normal Training),
English, French, Geography, German, Government,
Greek, History, Latin, Mathematics, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Music (6 units).
Or
b. A minimum of 9 units in each of two subjects to be chosen
from the following:
Biology (including Botany and Zoology), Chemistry, English,
French, Geography, German, Greek, History, Latin, Mathematics, Physics.
Work in the First or Second Year is required in each of the
major subjects, except in Education, Government, Sociology, and
Music.
In certain cases, however, this requirement may be fulfilled by
taking a First or Second Year course in the Third Year (see
section 3), but a course thus taken may not count towards the
required units for a major.
In addition to the major subjects a minimum of 6 units must
be chosen from some other subject or subjects.
2. Details of courses available in the Third and Fourth Years
are given under the various departments.
3. Only two subjects (6 units) of the First or Second Year
courses may be taken in the combined Third and Fourth Years.
In a number of these courses extra reading will be required of
Third and Fourth Year students.
When two First or Second Year subjects, other than a Beginners'
Language or Language 1, are taken in the Third and Fourth Years,
not more than one of these subjects may be outside the departments
in which the student is doing his major work.
For the purpose of this regulation the following subjects are
considered Third and Fourth Year subjects: Botany 1 (a) or
Zoology 1 (if both are taken), Chemistry 4f, Geography 1, Geology
1, Geology 2, German 2 if preceded by Beginners' German and
*Those who intend to enter the Teacher Training Course should consult section 3,
page 101.
tSee prerequisite for Chemistry 4. 82 Faculty of Arts and Science
German 1, Greek 2 if preceded by Beginners' Greek and Greek 1,
Latin 2 if preceded by Beginners' Latin and Latin 1, Mathematics
4, and Philosophy 1; also the subjects under 1 (d) or 1 (e) postponed to the Third or Fourth Year, as provided for under paragraph 5, page 80.
4. No credit will be given for a language course normally taken
in the First Year unless it is taken in the Third Year and continued
in the Fourth Year.
5. Students in the Third and Fourth Years, with the consent
of the departments concerned, may take one or two courses of
private reading (each to count not more than 3 units), provided
that:
a. (1) The candidate for a reading course shall have completed
his First and Second Years and shall have taken at least
6 units either of Second or Third Year work or of Second
and Third Year work in the subject in which the reading
course is taken; and
(2) Shall have made an average of at least Second Class in
the 6 units in question.
b. Both reading courses shall not be chosen in the same subject.
c. A reading course shall not be taken concurrently with Extra-
Sessional or with Summer Session courses except by a student
in the Fourth Year.
Credit for a course of private reading is part of the maximum
of 15 units which may be taken in addition to the regular work of
Winter and Summer Sessions; and no other additional work may
be taken in the same academic year.
B.  Honours Curriculum
1. Students whose proposed scheme of work involves Honours
courses must obtain the consent of the departments concerned and
of the Dean before entering on these courses; and this consent will
normally be granted only to those students who have a clear
academic record at the end of their Second Year with at least
Second Class standing in the subject or subjects of specialization.
(Cards of application for admission to Honours courses may be
obtained at the Registrar's office.)
2. Certain departments offer Honours courses either alone or
in combination with other departments. For Honours in a single
department, at least 18 of the requisite 30 units must be taken in
the department concerned, and at least 6 outside it. For Honours
in combined courses, at least 12 units are required in each of two
subjects. Particulars of these courses are given below. Honours Courses 83
3. Candidates for Honours, with the consent of the department
concerned, may offer a special reading course (to count not more
than 3 units) in addition to the reading courses offered above under
General Course Curriculum, section 5.
4. All candidates for Honours, at the option of the department
or departments concerned, may be required to present a graduating
essay embodying the results of some investigation that they have
made independently. Credit for the graduating essay will be not
less than 3 or more than 6 units. The latest date for receiving
graduating essays in the Second Term shall be the last day of
lectures; and the corresponding date for the Autumn Congregation
shall be October 1.
5. Candidates for Honours are required to take at the end of
their Fourth Year a general examination, oral or written, or both,
as the department or departments concerned shall decide. This
examination is designed to test the student's knowledge of his
chosen subject or subjects as a whole, and is in addition to the
ordinary class examinations of the Third and Fourth Years.
6. Honours are of two grades, First Class and Second Class.
Students who, in the opinion of the department concerned, have
not attained a sufficiently high ranking, may be awarded a General
Course degree. If a combined Honours course is taken, First Class
Honours will be given only if both the departments concerned
agree; and an Honours degree will be withheld if either department
refuses a sufficiently high grade.
7. It is hoped to offer the following Honours courses during the
session 1940-41. But if it is found impossible to do so, the University reserves the right to refuse new registrations in any of them.

amounting to 60 units chosen in conformity with Calendar regulations.
Honours standing will be accorded those students who obtain an
average standing of 80 per cent, in the Fourth Year and 75 per
cent, in the Third Year, and who do not fail in any subject taken
in the Third and Fourth Years.
It is also possible to obtain the B.A. and B.Com. degrees concurrently in five years on completion of 75 units chosen so as to
cover the requirements of both degrees. While the B.A. degree may
be completed in one year by students holding the B.Com. degree,
the converse may not be true, because prerequisites in some of the
Commerce courses involve two years of consecutive work. Course Leading to the Degree of B.Com. 91
Options in Forestry have been added in the Second, Third, and
Fourth Years of the B.Com. course for the benefit of students who
look forward to work with the forest industries. Students who
complete the work for the B.Com. degree with these options and
take the field work incidental to them may qualify for the degree
of B.S.F. by taking the Fifth Year Forestry course in Applied

For the regulations governing the double course leading to the
degrees of B.Com. and B.S.F., see the section Double Courses at
the end of the Calendar.
The regulations as to Summer Session credits, number of units
to be taken in any academic year, etc., apply to courses leading to
the degree of B.Com. in the same way as to courses leading to the
degree of B.A.
Before graduation each student must submit to the Department
a major report indicating his ability to carry out on his own
initiative a constructive piece of work of an industrial or commercial character. If possible this report should be associated
with the student's summer employment. Every student is advised
to obtain as much business experience as possible during the
summer vacations.
As the student progresses in his course he will be expected to
do an increasing amount of field work in the business community
available to him. In this way he will learn to work on his own
initiative and will acquire a first hand knowledge of business practice.
Periodic written reports are an important part of the different
courses, and students are warned that demands upon their time
will be sustained throughout the course.

COURSE LEADING TO THE DIPLOMA IN
SOCIAL WORK
Requirements for Entrance
The courses in Social Work are of a professional character and
are designed for graduate students with a B.A. degree or its
equivalent.
Requirements for the Diploma
To graduates in Arts whose undergraduate course has included
Economics 1, Psychology 1, and Sociology 1, the Diploma in Social
Work will be granted on completion of 27 units of credit made up
as follows: Social Work 1-13, 19 units; Nursing B5, 1 unit; Nursing B27, 1 unit; and 6 additional units (three in Sociology and 104 Faculty of Arts and Science
three in Third and Fourth Year courses in Psychology). Undergraduates who look forward to taking the Diploma are therefore
strongly advised to take the three prerequisite courses, namely,
Economics 1, Psychology 1, and Sociology 1, and are also advised
to take Economics 8 (Social Statistics). The 27 units required for
the Diploma will be reduced by 6 units for candidates who have
included in their undergraduate course both 3 units of Sociology,
additional to Sociology 1, and 3 units in Third or Fourth Year
courses in Psychology. A reduction of 3 units will be made if one
of these courses has been taken.
Length of Course
The normal time required to complete the course is two years,
but graduates qualified to receive the Diploma on completion of
less than 27 units may finish in one Winter Session and a subsequent Summer Session.
Fees
The fees are the same as for undergraduates in Arts. The full
fee for a Winter Session will cover the fee for the courses Social
Work 5 and 6, which are offered in the Summer Session only.
Date of Application
Applications for admission must be in the hands of the Registrar
not later than August 15. A personal interview with the Professor
of Sociology and with the Supervisor of Field Work is essential
and should take place before the first day of lectures.
Field Work
Field work is made possible through the co-operation of the
following agencies located in Vancouver: Alexandra Fresh Air
Camp; Alexandra Neighbourhood House; Children's Aid Society
of Vancouver; Child Welfare Branch, Department of the Provincial Secretary; Provincial Psychiatric Services; Divisions of
T.B. and V.D. Control; Family Welfare Bureau; Industrial School
for Girls; John Howard Society; Social Service Department, City
of Vancouver; Social Service Department, Vancouver General
Hospital; Welfare Branch, Department of the Provincial Secretary; Young Men's Christian Association; Young Women's Christian Association; and three agencies located in Victoria: Children's
Aid Society, Family Welfare Association, and Young Women's
Christian Association.
A minimum of four months' field work is required, for which
6 units of credit are granted.  The usual procedure is for a student Examinations and Advancement 105
to do 16 hours of field work each week for two terms and two
months field work prior to the opening of the Summer Session.
Reports are made by the agencies to the Supervisor of Field Work
from time to time. A student who fails to obtain a passing mark
on a field work report may be required to discontinue at the end
of the First Term.
An agency is not responsible for expenses (such as carfare)
incident to the field work.
PRE-MEDICAL COURSES
Candidates who plan to enter Medicine at other universities can
be exempted from one year of their course in Medicine by spending
two years at the University of British Columbia and selecting their
courses properly. The following outline for the First and Second
Years will fulfil the minimum requirements for admission to most
of the Canadian medical schools.
First Year: ^^
English 1, Modern Language 1, Mathematics 1, Physics 1, Chemistry 1, Biology 1. 18 units.
Second Year:
English 2, Modern Language 2, Physics 2, Chemistry 2, 3; Zoology 1. 18 units.
As most of the Canadian medical schools are overcrowded and
as each school gives preference to applicants from the province in
which the school is situated, applicants from British Columbia have
no assurance that they will be accepted for medical courses even
when they have fulfilled the minimum requirements for admission.
They are therefore strongly advised to complete the work for their
B.A. degree before seeking admission to a medical school. Some
medical schools wish the course for the B.A. degree to be as broad
as possible so as to include several courses in the humanities, while
others prefer Honours courses in the sciences.
EXAMINATIONS AND ADVANCEMENT
1. Examinations in all subjects, obligatory for all students, are
held in April. Examinations in December are obligatory in all First
and Second Year courses, and in all Third and Fourth Year courses
except where exemption has been granted by Faculty. Applications
for special consideration on account of illness or domestic affliction
must be submitted to the Dean not later than two days after the
close of the examination period. In cases where illness is the plea
for absence from examinations, a medical certificate must be pre- 106 Faculty of Arts and Science
sented on the appropriate form which may be obtained from the
Dean's office.
2. In any course which involves both laboratory work and written
examinations, students may be debarred from examinations if they
fail to present satisfactory results in laboratory work, and they will
be required to pass in both parts of the course.
3. Successful candidates will be graded as follows: First Class,
an average of 80 per cent, or over; Second Class, 65 to 80 per cent.;
Passed, 50 to 65 per cent.
4. A student who makes 50 per cent, of the total required for a
full year's work (at least 15 units chosen in conformity with Calendar regulations) but who fails in an individual subject will be
granted a supplemental examination in that subject if he has not
fallen below 30 per cent, in that subject. If his mark is below 30
per cent, a supplemental examination will not be granted. Notice
will be sent to all students to whom supplemental examinations have
been granted.
A student who makes less than 50 per cent, of the total required
for a full year's work (15 units) will not be allowed a supplemental
examination.
5. A request for the re-reading of an answer paper must be
forwarded to the Registrar WITHIN FOUR WEEKS after the
results of the examinations are announced. Each applicant must
state clearly his reasons for making such a request in view of the
fact that the paper of a candidate who makes less than a passing
mark in a subject is read at least a second time before results are
tabulated and announced. A re-reading of an examination paper
will be granted only with the consent of the head of the department
concerned.  The fee for re-reading a paper is $2.00.
6. Supplemental examinations will be held in September in
respect of Winter Session examinations, and in June or July in
respect of Summer Session examinations. In the Teacher Training
Course, supplemental examinations will be held not earlier than
the third week in June.
In the first three years a candidate who has been granted a supplemental may try the supplemental only once. If he fails in the
supplemental, he must either repeat his attendance in the course or
substitute an alternative chosen in accordance with Calendar regulations. In the case of Fourth Year students two supplemental
examinations in respect of the same course will be allowed.
A candidate with a supplemental examination outstanding in
any subject which is on the Summer Session curriculum may clear
his record by attending the Summer Session course in the subject
and passing the required examinations. Examinations and Advancement 107
7. Applications for supplemental examinations, accompanied by
the necessary fees (see Schedule of Fees), must be in the hands of
the Registrar by August 15.
8. No student may enter a higher year with standing defective
in respect of more than 3 units. (See regulations in regard to
advancement to Third Year Commerce, page 92, and in reference to
admission to Second Year Applied Science, page 80.
No student who has failures or supplementals outstanding in
more than 3 units, or who has any failure or supplemental outstanding for more than a year of registered attendance, will be allowed
to register for more than 15 units of work, these units to include
either the subject (or subjects) in which he is conditioned or permissible substitutes. But a student in the Fourth Year will be
permitted to register for 15 units of work in the Fourth Year, even
though he may have failures or supplementals outstanding against
him, providing that these failures or supplementals do not carry
more than three units of credit and that they do not involve the
repetition of a course. Such a student will not be permitted to
complete his examinations until September.
9. A student may not continue in a later year any subject in
which he has a supplemental examination outstanding from an
earlier year, except in the case of compulsory subjects in the
Second Year.
10. A student who is not allowed to proceed to a higher year
may not register as a partial student in respect of the subjects of
that higher year. But a student who is required to repeat his year
will be exempt from attending lectures and passing examinations
in subjects in which he has already made at least 50 per cent. In
this case he may take, in addition to the subjects of the year which
he is repeating, certain subjects of the following year.
11. A student who fails twice in the work of the same year may,
upon the recommendation of the Faculty, be required by the Senate
to withdraw from the University.
12. Any student whose academic record, as determined by the
tests and examinations of the first term of the First or Second Year,
is found to be unsatisfactory, may, upon the recommendation of the
Faculty, be required by the Senate to discontinue attendance at the
University for the remainder of the session. Such a student will not
be readmitted to the University as long as any supplemental
examinations are outstanding.
13. Term essays and examination papers will be refused a passing
mark if they are deficient in English; and, in this event, students
will be required to pass a special examination in English to be set
by the Department of English. 108 Faculty of Arts and Science
